Niamh Galligan 

BA [Hons] New Media Studies

My name is Niamh and I am a media student. I love critically analysing films, music, art and literature. I am very passionate about questioning the world around me through academic work such as essays and visual presentations. I also love working with other creative people and gaining new perspectives and skills in the process.

My Final Year Project critical essay and my Journalism written piece.

For my Final Year Project I focused on the 1950s melodramatic films of Douglas Sirk and how women were represented in his films. I questioned whether his films All That Heaven Allows (1955) and Imitation of Life (1959) subverted misogynistic attitudes in post-war American society.
I have also added an attachment of my Journalism CA - a written piece about how the pandemic impacted Irish healthcare students.
